IIoT or Industrial Internet of Things is one such technology that is mostly unknown to non-extert. In this article, IIoT is explained in detail.
IIoT or Industrial Internet of Things is one such technology that is well-known among industry experts but mostly unknown to the rest.
Whenever there's a discussion about IIoT, a comparison with IoT always exists.
Smart technology is expanding its horizons to sensor products, and it has completely changed the concept, integration, and application of these devices.
Temperature can be measured via a diverse array of sensors. All of them infer temperature by sensing some change in a physical characteristic.
Introduction to Pt100 RTD Temperature Sensors
A thermistor is an element with an electrical resistance that changes in response to temperature.
A pressure transducer, often called a pressure transmitter, is a transducer that converts pressure into an analog electrical signal. Although there are various types of pressure transducers, one of the most common is the strain-gage base transducer.
OMEGA transducers have three main types of electrical outputs; millivolts (mV), volts (V), and current (mA). It is important for the user to know which output suits his application to ensure proper selection of a transducer.
Pressure transducers are useful in a variety of industries.
When you’re troubleshooting pressure transducer problems, the first step is to ascertain that the device in place is the right one for its environment.
A strip heater is a device which is mounted on a surface and used to heat the surface or air (gasses).
Cartridge heaters are most frequently used for heating metal parts by insertion into drilled holes.
Electric heaters are used in a variety of processes where the temperature of an object or process needs to be increased.
An immersion heater is a device which is installed in a tank or container to heat a liquid. The installation can be over-the-side, flanged, or threaded.
As the name implies a Flow meter is an instrument for monitoring, measuring, or recording the rate of flow, pressure, or discharge of liquids or gasses.
An ultrasonic flow meter (non-intrusive Doppler flow meter) is a volumetric flow meter which requires particulates or bubbles in the flow.
A magnetic flow meter (mag flow meter) is a volumetric flow meter which does not have any moving parts and is ideal for wastewater applications or any dirty liquid which is conductive or water based.
A Coriolis flow meter is a type of mass flow meter. It is designed differently and works differently than thermal or differential mass flow meters.
A load cell is a transducer which converts force into a measurable electrical output.
A Strain gage (sometimes referred to as a Strain Gauge) is a sensor whose resistance varies with applied force; It converts force, pressure, tension, weight, etc., into a change in electrical resistance which can then be measured.
An LVDT is an electromechanical device used to convert mechanical motion or vibrations, specifically rectilinear motion, into a variable electrical current, voltage or electric signals, and the reverse.
Each load cell installation is unique. Consult a structural engineer when your application requires very high accuracy, long-term stability, custom specifications, or when using in a varied R&D environment.
